"There is a need to update the guidelines around the natural light in the workplace, the view of the researcher Arne Lowden."
"– A part of the requirements we place on our jobs are obsolete, " he says."
"It takes more than good electric lighting in order for employees to feel good and able to be productive for an entire working day believe Arne Lowden, a researcher at the stress research institute at Stockholm university."
"– most of us get an hour or less of daylight when we're working."
"There are big differences between daylight and electric light. Even during a cloudy day. The electric light turn to yellow, while the light has several color variations and turn towards the blue which is something that affects our health positively."
"– We see that it matters how close you sit in the window. Therefore it is not the lunch room be located in the basement. Employers can also offer longer paid lunch breaks so people can go out and eat."
"When the retirement age is expected to rise, so will the demands on the light also change. Older people require a much stronger light than younger people to be able to be productive, " explains Arne Lowden."
"– The most important thing is that we have a more individorienterat way to look at the measures that need to be done in the workplace."
"Arne Lowden, a researcher at the stress research institute at Stockholm university, has compiled the latest research on the light, and our consciousness in a report to the Swedish work environment Authority's behalf."
"According to him so is stress and ill-health at an alarmingly high level in Sweden."
"Daylight in the workplace has previously been measured at a point in the study. Now suggest that you should measure at several points in the room and instead start from the person's blickriktning."
"today, you can already in the planning stage to measure how much natural light which is planned to come into a room of a dwelling or place of work."
"In a arbetslokal where natural light is not possible is well dagsljusupplyst local for break and lunch will be extra important."
